Graylyn is part of the Umstead State Park multi-use (MUT) trails. It was a very nice downhill from north to south from where the N. Turkey Creek trail connects... then a medium uphill to connect with the Reedy Creek MUT. Not very long and relatively easy if you use your bike right. The hiking trails that cross this one include the Sycamore and Company Mill Spur trails. In addition to the great downhill is the stone bridge at the bottom of the hill that crosses Sycamore Creek. Great place to sit and rest.
